The City of Bellevue is reopening its search for a Planning and Community Development director.
In September, four finalists were chosen to be interviewed for the post. Residents had an opportunity to meet them during a public reception.
Following the interview process, however, City Manager Steve Sarkozy decided to reopen the search. While the finalists had excellent backgrounds and experiences, the city manager said he is searching for candidates with a blend of planning and economic development backgrounds better suited to Bellevue, and more management experience suitable for internal staff.
A second interview process is planned for Jan. 27 and 28. At that time, the public will again have the opportunity to join businesses and other community leaders to meet and talk with the candidates, as well as provide feedback on them. When the date gets closer, an announcement will be issued with details about the public reception.
